Here’s another entry in Browning’s Speed Load line of replaceable-blade knives: The Speed Load Tactical.

It’s a liner-lock folder that comes with four blades, and it looks interesting, especially for a cheap knife (the MSRP is $39.99).

Here’s what Browning has to say about it:

The new [Speed Load Tactical] knife features a folding liner lock blade with four replaceable 420J2 stainless steel razor blade inserts. The four inserts include one partially serrated drop point, one modified tanto, one modified sheepsfoot and one standard utility blade.

[I]t will accept any replacement blade for a common utility knife, easily purchased at most hardware stores.

The handle is sculpted black G-10 scales with anti-skid grooves on rear of handle. The knife also features a steel pocket clip, thumb stud and rugged flapped nylon belt sheath with polymer hard case insert for storing extra blades.
